[13:19:51] <@Torzelan> the "i only have one room to do everything in" room

Torzelan, tell me you were at Wacken when you picked up that WOA flag. What year was that?!

Hmm, but it actually can be done like itsays in the manual? That's somewhat encouraging. I've got what I want working in Sonar by typing in NRPN events manually, but I just thought that with this uber-controller I'd be able send events in a much less noobish fashion. Guess not.

It's not really the controller's fault. NRPN and other midi messages for control changes are just a pain in the ass due to the MIDI protocol which is oooooooold. But at least things are waaaay backwards compatible.

I purchased those Mackie HR624 MKII monitors from the used shop.

By the way, my room sucks for acoustics and my desk sucks too. But I want to move in a year or so, so I'm probably not going to do anything about it. Also I think that my room sinks toward the wall, I didn't realise this until I put the two monitors on the desk and then panned my head... one's higher than the other.

Fun times in rental units!

Kleenex+Lotion combo down below. Nice.

I anticipated this one actually and decided "eh whatever I won't retake the pic, people will understand". A mistake-- I left myself open to that one. :-( :-( Damn it, this is very shameful.

I keep Kleenex because I eat at my desk sometimes. The lotion because my hands get really, really dry:

Looks like it's one of these. Basically, it's a special gaming keypad where you'll map each key to the core functions in your game so you have one hand on the mouse and the other on that. More ergonomic and more customizable than a normal keyboard.

Kanthos is correct, my version is the Belkin n52 (the one he linked is the newer one, n52te).

Honestly I haven't figured out how to integrate it into my mixing setup yet, I used it for playing WoW. But, with some thought I could probably come up with some awesome setups for Logic Pro like one-button tool access or something. As for the monitor, it's actually not as far off the desk as it looks, there's table behind it.

Absolutely! T'was in the year of 2003 that we travelled by means of bus for 24 hours from northern Sweden.

(Also, it's a towel hahaha)

Drive speed and space is no longer an insurmountable problem, you can take your entire DAW and plugin collection anywhere, they've gotten fast enough and the screens are big enough provided that you pick the right model. Demographics should point out that students are well-represented and a desktop is useless bulk in most cases.

All the hard work is in the audio interface and the selection for those has grown a lot, too.

Not surprised ;).

The only thing that I feel that I lack when I mix on a laptop is screen real-estate (and a mouse/MIDI keyboard if I don't have them).

Hard drive speed and processor power, along with RAM, aren't pushed to the limit often enough for it to be an issue.

I've since sold the condenser microphone sitting on top of one of the speakers and replaced it with a couple of better ones.

Thats quite a nice setup you have there. May I ask what the second monitor is for?

Two monitors are awesome (three even more so). You have your sequencing screen left and the plugins/mixer on the right. You never have to move anything out of the way and you'll have everything on screen. For development, IDE on one side, website on the other.
